Re: Now Oracle should be worried..
I agree the as-a-service model continues to disrupt old business models while moving from areas where it has long been accepted, such as Software-as-a-Service to areas like this, robotics and others. For the user, such a model makes much more sense than tying up too much capital up front as with the traditional way of conducting business.

Re: Now Oracle should be worried..
I agree that Oracle probably won't team up in the near future, but I think they may have to if they fall behind with cloud infrastructure or being able to provide access to cutting edge machine learning algorithms. I picked a amazon partner because amazon has the cloud infrastructure that might match up with Oracle's existing customer base. And there aren't a lot of possible partners that wouldn't also be direct competition.

Re: Now Oracle should be worried..
Google certainly described it well as the best thing since sliced bread for " customer authentication systems, business-transaction and inventory-management systems, and high-volume media systems that require low latency and high throughput." They are really ramping up for some stiff competition with the other guys.

Re: Now Oracle should be worried..
@mhhfive: Those are all really good points and I also don't think it's a coincidence that Google pushed this out into GA at the same time Microsoft had its own DBaaS launch at Build. AWS is also out there with its own stuff as well. As far as Oracle goes, I don't see them teaming up with anyone. I think they will push their own cloud for their own DB and software. I just don't see them doing a joint anything at least at this point.

Now Oracle should be worried..
Databases-as-a-service are probably going to disrupt a LOT of software services. If the ability to manipulate large amounts (as well as small amounts) of information becomes "cheap" -- I'm not sure if any company can hold dominance over the database market. It eventually falls to who has the better interfaces and algorithms.. and I expect Google and Amazon will take the lead. Perhaps Amazon and Oracle might team up someday?
